Free agent utility man and Everett, Washington native Brent Lillibridge is getting some looks from the Mariners and Texas Rangers according to a tweet by Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

Last season between the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees, Lillibridge hit .119 with 5 RBI in 59 at-bats. He was called up to the Yanks when Derek Jeter went on the DL and was designated for assignment to make room for Alex Rodriguez.
For his career, Lillibridge is a .205 hitter with 19 homers and 71 RBI in parts of six seasons. His best year was with the Chicago White Sox in 2011. He hit .258 with 13 homers and 29 RBI.
Let’s hope the Mariners are interested in Lillibridge for some bench depth and not as their centerfield solution.
